    About Kinokophonography
    Kinokophone launched Kinokophonography in 2010 to help cultivate a forum through which recordists can inspire, intrigue and reveal through the stories that sounds can tell. Kinokophongraphy is a curated listening event that features audio works from around the world. It is a unique public gathering in celebration of the sounds around us and an exploration of the experience of listening. Through Kinokophonography, we hope to incite the production of new recordings, innovative audio production techniques and artistic collaborations.

    This CD includes tracks submitted to Kinokophongraphy between 2010 and 2015. It is packaged in a jewel case and features original artwork by T.S. Selm. Funds from the sale of this CD will go towards the development of future Kinokophonography events and to the artists featured on the compilation.

This is the sound heard under water in the melt water lake below the Fjallsjökull glacier in south eastern Iceland. Fjallsjökull is an outlet glacier flowing down from the Vatnajökull glacier ice cap, the largest glacier in Europe with a surface area of 13 600 square km.
!What we hear are the under water dynamics of smaller ice bergs floating in the melt water lake recorded at midnight early June 2014. These break off the glacier rim and slowly melt to form a lagoon of milk white water. The entire surrounding was very quiet and cold. It does not get dark at that time of the year. One sees the glacier rise up to the main ice cap disappearing in the fog. This quiet, cold and desolate landscape is sharply contrasted by the near chaos that one can hear through hydrophones in the lagoon water.
